Fall Front Porch

fallfrontporchcraftberrybush.com We’re setting record temperatures here. Today we hit a high of 40C with the humidity, which is 104F . Brody wanted nothing to do with the outside and I cut his walk short because he was panting so heavily.
The AC has definitely been working over time these past couple of days and I’m so very grateful for that. With it being so hot ,it feels a little weird to be posting fall things because it truly feels like the middle of summer out there. But alas, we’re back today with our Seasons of Home series kindly being sponsored by Joss & Main.
Today we’re featuring some fall outdoor spaces which we hope you will love.

fallfrontporchcraftberrybush.com-2 The plants outside are still thriving and it just felt wrong to dig them out of my planters so I left them .  I did trim the hydrangeas so I could stack the pumpkins on top of the planters.
Speaking of pumpkins, the pretty heirloom pumpkins  here cost you a pretty penny and can get expensiveeeee.  So even though I wanted  lots and lots of pumpkins on my steps, my wallet and conscious didn’t allow me to. fallfrontporchcraftberrybush.com-3
I think it’s really important to make do with what you have….:)
I decided to  also do a little white and blue outside and bought some little white pumpkins and some pretty white mums.

fallfrontporchcraftberrybush.com-32.3 My oldest son took this photo and kept asking why I was putting pumpkins out while you could hear cicadas on the hottest day of the year. All the while I was sweating buckets and trying my hardest not to look down towards the camera in order to avoid the double chin situation. Hence my look into yonder…lol.

I was so excited to decorate this little  wheelbarrow. Isn’t it cute? It’s going to be perfect for each season. I just love how whimsical it is.  fallfrontporchcraftberrybush.com-11 fallfrontporchcraftberrybush.com-12
I just filled it with some kale, mums and some little pumpkins… fallfrontporchcraftberrybush.com-13



I also replaced the door mat. I have such a hard time finding long mats for the front door, so I was so happy when I found this one.

Here is a better view of the stacked pumpkins. I think the potato ivy blocks them a little too much, but it’s just so pretty, I couldn’t cut it.  fallfrontporchcraftberrybush.com-16

Brody had just come back from a swim so he was nice and tired but always ready to say ‘cheese’

He’s such a good boy. If I say so myself.

    Your porch is beautiful, and so are you! I SO get the looking up to avoid the double-chin, it must be a mom-thing. My daughters tease me all the time about holding my phone so high for group selfies. Somehow it was cute when we were little, but not so much anymore :)

    Love it! Am definitely stacking some pumpkins this year and interspersing with vines. I also think the sweet potato vines are gorgeous and wouldn’t have eliminated them either!
